Default Home one year on March 17th!

For those of you who are waiting for your loved ones to come home, I want you to know you are awesome!

You cannot imagine what it felt like on March 17, 2003 to take that walk and see Linda and Mom and Dad standing by the car waiting for the gate to open.

I still cry when I think of that moment!

This last year has been the best year of my life, my family, my friends both here with me and those I have come to know through PTO!

I won't be online on March 17th, I will be with my parents and my family and attending the Conference, but I want you all to know, that I celebrate my freedom by celebrating you.

You are the ones who make those lonely nights a little less lonely for your loved ones, you are the ones whose voice they want to here when the phone is picked up at home, you are the ones whose face they want to see on visiting day. You are the ones that they want to hold when the day comes for them to come home.

I know it is hard, I know you cry, I know you hurt both emotionally and in many ways that one who has not been in your shoes will never know.

YOU ARE OUR STRENGTH AND COURAGE, never forget that.

To my Mom and Dad I say Thank You for being my parents and my guiding light. I love you both.

Linda, you said it all: "The love we share is our strength".

Be there for your loved ones guys, we are here for you.

I will be thinking and praying for all of you on March 17th.

One day you and yours will be here too.

Love You all,

Patti

Default Thank You!

Bless you all, guys!

heureuse,

Thank You, I caught it!

One of my deepest desires for this trip was to see my Dad.

He has Alzhiemers and Mom has reported that his decline has continued since my release last year. I wanted to set on the porch, and just talk to him, as we always have. Monday, after the conference, I had that wonderful blessing, he was the man - my Daddy - that I remember - it was like traveling back in time.

The last thing he said to me that evening was: "Patti, you have made me so proud, you have made it back".

You do not know what those words mean to me.

Thank You,

Patti
